baby chick not right

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello. I have 2 month old chickies and this morning when I went out to feed everyone I have a buff orphington who has her head cocked to the side and will not straighten it up. She is standing on both feet. I noticed yesterday that she was not sticking around the flock like usual and when I would go over to gee she was laying in random spots with her eyes closed. When I picked her up she would just look around and then go back to sleep. I don't know what to do. Or what's wrong with her. Should I remover her from the flock? Anyone know why her head would be tilted over?

Without any photos, it's hard to tell.

From what you describe it could be wry neck. Provide Vitamin E and selenium in her water.
